This morning, we’re following a major announcement from the Obama administration, which affects up to 800,000 young illegal immigrants. 

The administration says it will stop deporting illegals under 30 who came to this country as children.

Meanwhile, President Obama is busy trying to get reelected.  But his efforts have not necessarily translated into big money.

A national organization reported a big drop in small contributions to the President’s campaign in Oregon this year, compared to 2008.

Also, in Washington, the leading candidates for governor debated in Spokane.

And state Rep. Matt Wingard is in trouble over a relationship with an aide.

Our political guys, Bill and Jeff have been paying attention and join us again this morning.

Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst; he’s at the OSU Media Center. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian; he’s on the line.
